'Dancing With The Stars' Semifinals: Will Kristi Go All The Way?

May 13th, 2008 9:08am EDT
Kristi Yamaguchi
Mario and his perpetually glaring partner Karina are history, which leave only four couples on "Dancing With The Stars." Somehow Cristian's injury has made him a better dancer, and now the winner is anyone's guess. Tonight is the final elimination before the finale so last night's dance might have been the most important night of the competition. The dances were chosen by chance, so a little extra drama will come into play.

Jason and Edyta

Jason bombed last week so he really needed to step up to make it to next week. They did the fox trot and the paso doble this week, the first of wh...

'Dancing With The Stars': Marissa Is Probably Going Home Tonight

Marissa Jaret Winokur
Happy Cinco De Mayo Samantha Harris! We're down to the final five, and with only three weeks to go things are about to take a serious turn. Shannon and Derek are gone, but I will solider on for you loyal readers. I've got my judging cap on, so let's get to the dancing.

Kristi and Mark

Kristi took a nose dive down to fourth place last week and wanted to do a lift in their samba. Mark was against it since it isn't in the character of the dance. She wanted to get back on top and was thrilled to do a lift in the quick step. Mark wanted to get tens without using tricks

'Dancing With The Stars': Dull Dancing, An Injury & More

Dancing With The Stars
Sniff, Marlee is gone. No really I'm ok, I swear. Well, six couples remain on "Dancing With The Stars." Kristy has it in the bag still, but things can change. Last night each couple had two dances that were judged by the terrible trio of judges. Will this week seal the fate of the weaker competitors (I'm looking at you Marissa) or will everything change? Tom and Samantha prepped us, and we're ready to go. Quick note, I'm preserving my sanity by listing both dances together, otherwise this would be a mess to read.

We're reminded that last week Marissa had her best sco...

This week on "Dancing With The Stars" there is the usual introduction fluff. Each couple has their own dance and some sort of country dance so let's not waste time and jump right in then, shall we? Oh, and Samantha is looking beautiful as usual.

Jason and Edyta- The cha cha

We've got Jason near the top of the dancing heap, and this week Edyta takes Jason to hip-hop school where I wanted to go for summer camp but alas, space camp was where I ended up. Jason is set to show Len he can dance. Starting with a jump off the stairs Jason has embraced his dancing destiny and is keeping up wit...

Mario and Karina- Samba

Karina seems defeated, and Mario needs an ego boost. They go to meet Stevie Wonder, since his being blind might help Mario do well...it works for Marlee. Will his newfound confidence drive him to the top? Well, so far the promise of this being the sexiest night of dancing has been a ...

Ok, now we can begin.

Marlee Matlin
We're down to the final 10. Buckle up, we've got an hour and a half of this!

Marlee and Fabian - Jive

She has a Hallmark movie on CBS in a few weeks, and I bet she plays a deaf woman. Marlee looks extra hot tonight, though, and the dancing is fantastic. She is in league with Kristy as one of the best dancers on the show. I'm predicting she'll be in the final three. Len says she never ceases to amaze him, Bruno is not as enthusiastic, and Carrie Ann is starting to get nitpicky, telling Marlee to be careful with her hands.

My Score- 8

Carrie Ann- 7

The First Two Couples Eliminated From 'Dancing With The Stars'

Dancing With The Stars
LOS ANGELES (AP) - Magician Penn Jillette and tennis champ Monica Seles were the first stars eliminated from the sixth season of ABC's ''Dancing With the Stars.'' Each came into Tuesday's results show in last place.

Jillette, 53, added a dash of magic to his quickstep, but his footwork failed to impress the judges. Despite his dismissal, the magician insisted that he and his professional partner would continue to rehearse daily and planned to perform in the parking lot. ''There's no way my dance career ends now,'' he said.

Before her name was announced, Seles said being the first ...

'Dancing With The Stars': Music Ranges From Annoying To Jam-A-Pen-In-My-Ears Terrible

Here we are, week number two of 39. I'm going to be glossing over all the filler because honestly nobody wants to sit through it, so why give them the satisfaction of writing about it? So here is week two, written as I watch it.

Steve Guttenberg and Anna - Mambo

Anna brought her mom to rehearsals, and it was only slightly awkward to learn her mom is as old as Steve. She gave Steve some great advice though about enjoying the dance. Let's see if he can translate that to his dancing. First off, the music they pick for these dances ranges from mildly annoying to jam-a-pen-in-my-ears horr...

On Tuesday's episode of "Dancing With The Stars" they started out by reintroducing the competitors, for the three of you who didn't watch Monday night. At least we didn't have to sit through another random dancing scene, but I was left wondering what they're going to do to fill time - clips from Monday night, of course.

I noticed Steve Guttenberg got 666, creepy. Since I have the mutant power to remember what happened Monday night I started to zone out a bit. Len was in a good mood the night before, but apparently he was grumpy on Tuesday. Good thing he is professional enough to let u...

When I’m on "Dancing With The Stars" my contract will stipulate that no footage of me falling on my ass can be shown. I’m putting my money on two shows before someone trips or faints or hits a cameraman with a shoe.

Ah, the professional dancers are on stage giving us a sneak preview of every hour-long results show we’ll be seeing from now until May. I forgot that watching this show makes me wish I was a dancer. Then I remember I can’t walk in a straight line without tripping so dancin...

How did your involvement in this season's competition come about?

I’m asking myself the same question - all I know is my agent presented it to me, started selling me on it and between him and my wife, the next thing you know I’m living in LA!

How is training for the competition different then training for a football season?
